Labour sure as hell weren’t campaigning on an end to 5-eyes. They’ve gone along with it whenever they’ve been in govt. I’m not even sure it’s something they could change, without self-destructing.
And that’s a worry.
I know it's a different issue, but Labour have been at best lukewarm on their opposition to the TPPA. In fact Phil Goff's practically a cheerleader.
You were there too?
The 1960s? Yep.

I remember. Thanks FG.
Would it help if we all had unique ID chips implanted in our hands…

What a goldmine of studliness, really I had no idea.
Hang on, let me sort that out. It’s a ministerial car not a ute.
Under Tom Semmens's dictatorship of the Waitakere Man proletariat it'd be a ministerial ute.
Blairism will destroy that party, and I mean that literally.
Jose Pagani's vision of a grand coalition with National must be the only reason she continues to drag out the rancid carcass of Blair's legacy.
Meanwhile National voters got out and voted.
Given the numbers who voted candidate Labour, party National, I’m not even sure what you mean by National voters.
I will not be shutting the fuck up about that in the foreseeable.
an attempt by former members of South Africa’s Conservative Party – these guys: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conservative_Party_(South_Africa) – to establish a beachhead Auckland, especially in the Rodney electorate but elsewhere on the North Shore of Auckland. They were stopped, you may think ironically, partly as a result of a counter-campaign involving Lusk and Whaleoil.
Opportunistically rather than ironically. When you're simply out to smear someone, religion seems to be as handy as racism:
For the next few days Lusk and Slater ran two themes, attacking Robinson for his Christian connections – ‘the last thing the party needs is more allegations of interference in the party from religious brethren’21 – and attacking Pienaar about his past in South Africa: ‘there are a few people in the South African press who have long memories of this man, and there have been offers of providing full details of his extremely colourful past, especially in the 1980s.
